States of being

What is happening to our state of being

Our air is impure

Our waters are polluted

Our seasons are erratic

Our forests are fast disappearing

Our land is reclaimed

Our food is contaminated

Almost every kind of food and medicine

Is adulterated.

Our fruits are ripened with chemicals.

Our rice is turning plastic

Our vegetables are genetically modified

Nothing feels real anymore

What is happening to the real?

Is anything authentic at all?

We are living in a virtual world

What is pure and what is contaminated?

We are living in a world of unethical practices.

How do we stay aware?

To spot the differences

To find the real among these fakes.
We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.

The truth of it all!

Sifting through layers of life

To arrive at the truth of it all.

You have to pass through many stages.

There will be the lure of enticements

There will be the spell of bewitchments

There will be beguiling colours

That seem to hold your senses in rapture.

But if you truly wish to witness

The truth amidst the facades

You will notice the simplest clues

That were always there right before you

Just that you never noticed

Like as often truth is taken for granted

In the arresting sights that enthrall.

Choose to see beyond the facades

You will touch base with the truth of it all.

Interestingly the thoughts that resulted in this post came from mangoes actually. As my thoughts were on how we as consumers are sold chemically ripened fruits like mangoes and bananas rampantly.

Here is simple way I came across to test chemically ripened mangoes which I also tried at home … Just take a large bowl of water and try to immerse the mangoes in it. Watch what happens…

Apparently only the chemically ripened mangoes float in water and the others rest at the bottom .

The bigger mango is floating and the smaller one is resting at the bottom.

Trying to understand a little more I chanced upon this clip below.

This is a great link share on the same subject. Of sifting through the fakes!!!

Watch “How to find out- Organic Mangoes vs chemical treated Mangoes” on YouTube

We are sadly in a world without ethical practices in businesses. We need to find ways to sustain our world . It begins with each of us. As each step to change for better and find solutions starts with understanding the issues up close.

If any of you have experiences or tips on how to find out the artificially ripened fruits do care to share.

Hope it helps to spread awareness.
